This beauty was a little more obliging for me, basking in the sunshine with its wings almost fully open.

Now that is a beautiful Butterfly, Carol.
That powder blue colour is one of nature's finest.
This one I really like.
Much better than all that insect violence, with spiders ripping heads off stuff..!!

Lovely shots Carol, such a delicate creature and the colour is gorgeous. I saw what I think were this species in work yesterday, must try and get out there with a camera next week.
